    One thought on “The Worry Website”

    1. I craved to read a Jacqueline Wilson book, and this was so short I finished it in one sitting. I wish my primary school classes had been this kind!

    2. This book so far is fantastic! I think its based on a good story line and one of my friends recommended it to me so i am going to reed the book. Also it is a very easy story line to follow.

    3. I can't believe I forgot how freaking important this book is. Ultimately about a teacher whose care for his students empowers them to rise against their fears.

    4. This is a book of short stories based on the lives and worries of seven pupils in Mr Speeds junior class. Due to circle time being a bit embarrassing for particular students to talk about their feelings, Mr Speed came up with a brilliant idea called ‘The Worry Website’. When each pupil was allowed their allocated time on the computer they were given the opportunity to write whatever they wanted onto the worry website and wait for the responses from their fellow classmates with advice and vie [...]

    5. The worry Website is a great book by Jacqueline Wilson. Based in Mr.Speed's class, the pupils in the class are provided with a website where they can post their worries anonymously and get advice from their class mates. The book focuses on the stories of six pupils in the class, their worries and their story. One of the great things about the book is that the characters are linked in a clever way.This book address problems children face on a daily basis, and being from the children's point of vi [...]

    6. Mr.Speed adalah seorang guru yang disenangi murid-muridnya, sedikit gila kadang-kadang tetapi sangat perhatian terhadap masalah murid-muridnya. Kemudian Mr.Speed membuat situs masalah dengan tujuan membantu masalah yang dihadapi murid-muridnya. Jika punya masalah cukup masuk ke situs masalah, ketikkan masalahmu tanpa perlu menulis nama, cukup menunggu maka nasihat-nasihat akan kau terima tentu saja nasihat tersebut juga anonim karena memang begitulah peraturannya. Tapi, dengan pergaulan sehari-h [...]

    7. Ni buku lucu! Ceritanya ttg seorang guru yg membuat situs namanya situs masalah. Situs ini untuk semacam curhat buat anak2 yg sedang punya masalah heheLalu kemudian anak2 yang lain bebas untuk mengomentari atau memberikan solusi buat anak yang punya masalah tersebut. Permasalahan yang diungkapkan di buku ini berbeda-beda. Dari anak yang berbeda-beda pula. Ada yang marah karena ayahnya pacaran lagi,karena ibunya sudah meninggal,ada yang curhat bahwa dia lagi suka dengan salah 1 teman perempuannya [...]

    8. This is a great book for any children who think their problems are too big to be solved. But more importantly, this book is a must read for any adults who think children’s worries are only about child related issues. It will give them massive insight into how children think and creative ways to solve their very real and sometimes heartrending problems. My favourite character in this story is Mr Speed because he is the type of teacher which every single school on the entire planet needs to have [...]

    9. I felt that this was a very good book aimed for a generation of kids online. One of the entries was actually written by a competition winner kid, but I didn't like it. Sorry.A lot of these stories were only bite-sized chunks but they were still really inventive and profound, so it's a good read for kids. Especially kids online, so basically all 21st century kids. My personal favourite stories were Holly, Samantha, Claire and William.

    10. This is a youngish junior fiction that might make for an interesting class discussion. Kids post what they are worried about anonymously and classmates respond anonymously with constructive advice or empathy. Could be a neat class project to engage in as well.

    11. Man kan hurtigt gå i barndom og sluge en bog når man futter rundt i børnebiblioteket. Hyggelig lille bog, dog med nogle ret hårde emner i nogen af historierne - men forhåbentligt kan de hjælpe nogen børn.

    12. A collection of short stories that tie in to each other. Classic example of the brilliant mind of Jacqueline Wilson. Real problems tackled in a fun, imaginative way, while still remaining serious.

    13. I read this book many, many, many years ago, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.It taught me to realise that everyone has problems that you may not know about.

    14. Ketikkan Masalahmu:Mr. Speed, aku baru tahu kalau anak-anak memiliki masalah sebanyak ini. Bahkan banyak di antara mereka yang memiliki masalah yang sangat-sangat berat dan rumit. Misalnya saja Holly yang ditinggalkan oleh ibunya ketika adiknya masih kecil, lalu ayahnya ingin menikah lagi. Yah, calo ibu tirinya Holly sih tampaknya nggak jahat, soalnya dia kan gurunya Hannah, adik Holly. Tapi aku juga ngerti sih kalo Holly merasa takut dan khawatir. Mungkin dia nggak rela kalo kasih sayang ayahny [...]

    15. Read this book as a kid and I found it hilarious. Very rarely to I actually laugh out loud to a book, but this book made me cry with laughter during Greg's part.

    16. Jacqueline Wilson has not lost any of her narrative power even when writing for the digital age. 'The Worry Website' is a fantastic collection of linked short stories from the points of view of different pupils in a class taught by Mr Speed, an eccentric teacher who has put up a website where the class can talk about their worries anonymously and give each other help with their problems. It's a lovely example of the Internet being used for peer support, though Wilson does not idealise how self-o [...]

    17. The Worry Website is Mr Speed the class teacher's idea of a Web site for his primary school pupils to write their worries down anonymously and then get help with solving them from their peers. Jacqueline Wilson has linked the worries of six children in the book through six short stories, and a seventh story is contributed by 12-year-old Lauren Roberts, winner of an online competition. Each story refers to the other class members, so that they do not sit in isolation, and "Greg's Worry", the seco [...]

    19. Dame Jacqueline Wilson (a very deserved title!) is, in my opinion, the best contemporary children's writer. She writes perfectly, in content, theme, style and accessibility for children from aged 6 to 13 (ish - of course this varies among children). She writes flawlessly for children, I could not find a single fault.She is never patronizing and introduces young people to important life issues such as love, poverty, friendship, adolescence, separated parents, illnesses and so much more, in a mann [...]

    20. Seandainya banyak guru yang penuh perhatian seperti Mr. Speed, anak-anak pasti lebih bahagia di sekolah. Dia menciptakan situs masalah tempat anak-anak bisa menuliskan keluhan mereka secara anonim, dan teman-teman sekelas dapat mengomentari, syukur-syukur memberikan jalan keluar. Tapi yang paling saya suka adalah bagian ketika Mrs. Wilson bercerita tentang 'tantangan' yang dia lemparkan kepada para pembacanya (anak-anak) untuk menulis kisah versi mereka sendiri tentang masalah yang dihadapi sala [...]

    21. I have just started this book and I really enjoy it. At first they spent a lot of chapters on one girl but now I understand that each chapter is talking about another child's worry which I find much more entertaining! The author is doing a great job at expressing emotions, even when they don't make sense, I still understand what the kids mean. It's a great book and slowly, all the class' worries are being solved!I just finished the book an I loved it! During the last chapter, as everything was c [...]

    22. My friends and I have an experience using worry box a few years ago. We did it on schools in Aceh after tsunami. Since most schools in Indonesia don’t have internet connections so instead of having a worry website, we use worry box. It’s a box made from a chalk box where students can put their worries inside the box like “I cannot sleep well last night because it’s been raining all night and it made me scared”, etc. Teachers will read the children’s worries and try to solve the probl [...]

    23. Kumpulan berbagai masalah anak-2 SD yang bikin mereka khawatir (^ ^)Bukan cuma cocok dibaca anak-anak, tapi juga bisa dibaca orang dewasa, seperti yang berprofesi sebagai guru, misalnya (^,^)/Soalnya pemecahan masalah oleh si guru sekolah di sini, Mr. Speed, gabungan antara kocak & jitu (^^)Misalnya, Samantha yang selalu kepikiran ayahnya yang meninggalkan dia dan ibunya, (view spoiler)[ Mr. Speed gak nguliahin ini-itu, tapi ngasih kesibukan baru yang akhirnya jadi hobi si Sam ini, yaitu ber [...]

    24. In Mister Speed's class - where the kids are between eight and ten years old - everyone seems to have problems. Greg's in love, Holly's getting a step-mum, Lisa's mum is physically abused by her, Samantha's parents split up and her dad's got a girlfriend, William has low self-esteem and Natasha can't join in with the concert, because she's handy-capped. They write about their problems on a Worry Website, which is a substitute for "Circle Time".I'd say, this is a good read, especially since every [...]

    25. This book is about a teacher of a class creating an online anonymous site where his children can write their worries and comment on other class mates’ worries. Each chapter describes a different child’s worry, which in the end gets resolved at the end of each chapter. This is usually done by talking freely about their worry. The second to last chapter was written by a child who won a competition, this happens to be the saddest chapter of the book. This book I feel enables children to underst [...]

    26. This book details the worries of several children, all members of Mr. Speed's class. It's an interesting format, as the children all enter their worries through a website, then go on to detail their problems. The problems range from boken families to disability, and cover a good deal inbetween, and, as ever, Jacqueline Wilson deals with the matters in frank, emotional and honest ways, whilst keeping the book entertaining.This is a good story, with quite a nice feelgood end to each 'mini-chapter' [...]

    27. Sukaa.Situs Masalah ini semacam situs curhatan murid2 Mr. Speed. Tentang masalah apa yang sedang mereka hadapi. Ada Claire, William, Samantha, Holly, Greg, Lisa, dan Natasha. Imho sebenernya pemecah masalah itu tidak lain dan tidak bukan adalah Mr. Speed sendiri. Dengan caranya, semua anak didik yang menuliskan masalah di The Worry Website mendapatkan solusi yang tak terduga.Saya sudah membaca 2 novel Jacqueline Wilson, sudut pandangnya sama, yaitu orang pertama. Jadi, baca novelnya kayak lagi b [...]

    29. There are a TON of books by Jacqueline Wilson on that list of top 100 or 200 books everyone should read. I'd never heard of her until then. She writes juvenile books and my library had a few. Also my daughter's teacher has wants her to read longer books. So, I figured I'd pick up one and check it out. It's a super quick read and it was pretty cute. It tackles some tough problems that kids have in a funny and age appropriate way and I very much liked it. I'm definitely passing it on to my daughte [...]
